It shall be the purpose of this Association to incorporate in educational assessments the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion to address, but not be limited to, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and disability as we engage in the following efforts:
Support those who direct the administration of assessment and testing programs in prekindergarten through post secondary educational settings, incorporating new and advancing technologies;
Promote fair and equitable assessment design and selection, as well as, valid interpretations and uses of assessment data as defined in the “Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing” sponsored by AERA, APA, and NCME.
Share information about assessment in educational settings;
Educate stakeholders and improve their application of best practices in measurement;
Encourage, promote, and support research in assessment and testing in schools.
Support other initiatives as the role of assessment evolves.
We are committed to incorporating the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion in its governance, program offerings, and operations.
